Subject: James Appleby

I am researching the life of James Appleby, born Twickenham,UK on 11 June 1899, son of William Edwin Appleby. James served in WW1, served as a 2nd.Lt in Royal Flying Corps 62 Squadron, a pilot, his plane crashed in France in 1918, both he and his observer 2nd.Lt J M Holling were injured. In 1919 he joined the British South Africa Police in Southern Rhodesia, rose through the ranks and became Commissioner. He retired in 1954. He was married but I have no details of his wife or children, if there were any.
I can find out nothing about him after his retirement except an unconfirmed report that he died on 7th July 1985 but place of death is unknown, records checked in UK reveal no trace of his death and it is probable that he died in South Africa. I would like to know what he did after retirement and/or if he had any descendants.
